After all, his stint as the starter for the New York Jets ended with mixed results.
Likewise, Russell Wilson‘s durability limited his minutes on the field.
The former West Virginia standout had a chance to show his talent when Wilson went down with a finger injury last season.
However, his stint as the starter lasted only three games.
This year, Smith is proving his doubters wrong by being on target through the first four weeks.

The official Twitter account of the Seahawks’ public relations department shared, “@Seahawks QB @GenoSmith3 has a 77.3 completion percentage (102 of 132) through his first four games this season, the highest completion percentage (minimum 125 attempts) by a quarterback in his first four games of a season in NFL history. #GoHawks.”
The second-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft has also guided the Seahawks to a 2-2 record.
Smith started the season with an 82.1 percent completion rate in their Monday Night Football game versus Wilson and the Denver Broncos.
A week later, he had an 80 percent mark against the San Francisco 49ers.
He followed that up by completing 72.7 percent of his throws against the Atlanta Falcons.
In Week 4, Smith had a 76.6 percent clip in a high-scoring victory against the Detroit Lions.
Smith Facilitated A Humming Offense
Smith’s accuracy helped wide receiver D.K. Metcalf finish with seven receptions for 149 yards.
Meanwhile, Tyler Lockett had six catches for 91 yards.
On the other hand, he helped unleash Rashaad Penny, who had 17 carries for 151 yards and two touchdowns.
Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford has the second-highest completion rate through four games at 72.5 percent.
They are the only two quarterbacks with rates of at least 70 percent.
